naonal. go like a pro. gerri: president obama has made the oil companies out to be tax cheats, but i'll write down how the world's biggest is paying more than their fair share next. ♪ ♪ gerri: well, it was a record date or near record day for one of the world's biggest companies , exxon mobil. now, the oil joint -- giant barely missed a record 44-year earnings just under 45 billion, 340 million shy of its 2008 record profit. net income equals $2.20 per share or about $10 million a. it's a huge number for that company. as a result of the success people on the left really does the companies say they don't deserve the massive tax breaks they're getting. these big bad boy of guys have to pay their fair share like the rest of successful -- i mean, i'm sorry, wealthy americans. take a look at this. for the fourth quarter exxon paid nearly seven and a half billion dollars in income taxes. nearly 8 billion in sales taxes. nearly 9 billion in assorted other taxes, a total of more than $24 billion in taxes. so, let's revisit the top of the segment for a moment. according to today's earning
need and is president obama correct to say that tax revenue needs to be part of that solution? >> i would say we are half way there. unfortunately, we have done easy stuff. we raised taxes on rich people and we've capped discretionary send itting without saying exactly what we would cut. we haven't done anything to reform a tax code. we haven't done anything to reform our entitlement programs. to slow overrate of growth of the economy. we have to do that or we will never get to the promise land. i think president obama is right. that we still got to have some revenue in the mix. but again, the real focus has to be on reducing these entitlement costs. that's the big deal. >> senator, you agree that we need entitlement cuts but we also need revenue as part of the last phase of this deficit reduction? >> i do, indeed. you don't have to call it a tax increase. if you go into the tax expenditures, which are these loop holes, they are really spending any other name, earmarked, $1,100,000,000 of them. you can't spend your way out of this hole and can't tax your way out of this hole or grow

not getting america back to work fast enough. former economic adviser, president obama, joining us next, and i'll challenge him on this point he made last time he was on with stuart. >> that's because for after we get through a period of slow population growth and the baby boom being born, we've had an aging population for some time so i think the fact that there is a group of people who dropped out of the labor force and have not come back is the weakest part in the job market.

this accomplished than he is harming the republican party. >> senator mccain, have you talked to president obama about this issue? >> i have not. >> what are the state of relations these days? >> i, i have great respect for the president. i hope and i believe that at some point we will all be meeting with the president on this issue because we need to coordinate with the administration. but, i think, i haven't seen a degree of partisanship overall as there is today but we are showing some signs of bipartisanship. this thing we just did in averting the nuclear option in the senate, this issue, i think that republicans are more inclined to let the process go forward and senator reid is more, more inclined to let us have amendments. i see, i think that when we are down to 11% approval rating, there was a favorability thing, different things are favorable. a colonostomy is viewed more favorably than a member of congress. we're kind of in bad shape to say the least. i won't view that line any further. i got up in line, anybody said in the airport anybody say you look a lot like senator john mccain. i
, hillary clinton, faced intense questioning over the obama administration's handling of security before its statements after september's attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. >> because of a protest or guys out for a walk and they decide to kill some americans? what difference, at this point, does it make? >> analysts say in the wake of the ben ghazi attacks, there is greater focus on what the u.s. can and can't do in protecting its diplomats. >> if someone wants to take their life to take yours, there's very little that can be done. >> lew coffee is a security expert at the heritage foundation. he says keeping the bomber from entering the embassy play add key role in reducing the casualties. >> he exploded himself outside. >> what remains to be seen is friday's attack was an isolated to send a message to the start of a new wave of violence in u.s. facilities in turkey. >> this is not, however, the first time u.s. diplomatic facilities in turkey have been targeted previously by terrorists back in 2008, the attack blamed an affiliate outside the u.s. consulate. three assay lents and
of president obama disbanding his jobs council, a group of business leaders who advised him on the economy. republicans were quick to seize on the news, scoffing at the white house's handling of the council and the economy overall. >> if the white house spent nearly as much time trying to actually fix the economy as it did claiming it was fixed and then finding excuses and sca scape goats when its premature announcements were false i suspected the economy would be better than it is doing here today. >> christine romans, is he right? the unemployment rate is still what, 7.9% now. >> yes, 7.9%, 157,000 jobs created in january. that's modest hiring. that is an economy that is healing still slowly but carol when you look at the end of the year, we had some revisions to the jobs creation in november and december. i want to show you the end of the year, things look stronger than we thought at the end of the year so hiring was picking up in november and december. hiring picking up enough, carol, to actually eat into the number of people who are out there still looking in the wake of the recession

white house correspondent jessica yellin is reporting that the obama administration has approached a number of elected officials about taking the job. but so far they have declined that job. >>> so if you've been watching cable tv, there's a pretty good chance that you've seen a case about a young woman named jodi arias who is accused of killing her ex-boyfriend travis alexander. look, it's not your garden variety murder. there are plenty of murders out there. but this one caught a lot of eyes. first of all, he's a lot bigger than than she is and apparently the death was caused not only from the shot of a .25 caliber gun, but 27 stab wounds and his throat being slit from ear to ear, and this is the woman they are talking about, and there are photographs that had a whole other side of jodi arias. arias' defense is self defense. that's what she said. she said this was a tough relationship, that he was a sex maniac that threatened her with bodily harm, but a bullet casing and camera may tell a different story in the courtroom. and then there are the lies, one after the other that this
aren't afraid of obama care or numbers low or what do you think? >> well, health care is kind of -- it did well -- i don't believe there was a month even in the great recession when we were losing 700,000 jobs a month and health care did not add jobs. the job increasing pressures in the health care sector are just unrelenting because there's so much demographic pressure and half of health care spending is from the government side. look. in retail, i agree with peter. fourth quarter gdp and decent personal income retail growth. >> let's talk about the fourth quarter gdp. first time of a decline since 2009 and when you look in to the numbers consumer spending was up, business spending on equipment is up. housing equipment was up. federal government spending was down by an annual rate of 15% so how much of a drag is actually cuts to federal government spending on the economy right now? >> we can quantify that. took about 1.25 points off the g d gp growth. i think these are one offs meaning i think once we get revised numbers we find out that the economy is growing as peter sugges
